5 Success Stories You May Have Missed in July

ImageHere are great ideas and good news from around the Winnefox Library System:

⇒ The Ethel Everhard Library of Westfield is taking storytimes on the road with a month-long read-aloud series at Pioneer Park.

⇒ Menasha Public Library is offering online reader's advisory via their "Your Next Great Read" form on their website; "Choose to pick up your list of suggestions or have it sent to you by email -- or have us simply place some books on hold for you!"

⇒ Two libraries collaborated with local humane societies to provide fun programs that benefitted adoptable animals: Oshkosh Public Library teamed up with the Oshkosh Area Humane Society to provide a Kitten Kuddle program that gave 5 kittens socialization time, and the kids and teens painted animal art that will help raise funds for the shelter; and the Pine River Library of Leon and Saxeville Townships hosted puppies Daisy and Luigi from the Humane Society of Waupaca County, and kids who attended the program made toys for the cats and dogs to enjoy.

⇒ The 7th annual Taste of Wautoma and silent auction raised $5,426 for the Wautoma Public Library, whose staff worked with 12 local restaurants to make it happen.

⇒ Oshkosh Public Library has added a charging station for patrons to use with their cell phones and tablets, providing charging cables for Apple and Android devices.
